Competition: challenge stereotypes of older people & technology
- Published 25th October 2011
The University of Bath is running a national photography competition to challenge stereotypes of older people & technology.
The winning images will be displayed in an exhibition appearing at all four national parliaments, visiting the Houses of Parliament, the Welsh Assembly, the Northern Ireland Assembly and the Scottish Parliament.
The competition is called Left to Our Own Devices and is run jointly by Age UK, a national charity, and KT‑EQUAL, a research consortium dedicated to improving the lives of older and disabled people, including researchers at Bath.
The judges are looking for interesting images on the theme of older people’s experiences with technology, and particularly images that challenge stereotypes, deliver a powerful message, surprise or entertain.
The competition has four categories and one winner from each area will win £250:
- Gadgets and Gizmos
- In the Home
- Out and About
- An open category
The competition is free to enter via the the competition website. The closing date for entries is 31 January 2012.
